"Third time is the charm".

Underwood was previously featured on Season 14 of The Bachelorette, starring Becca Kufrin.

However, Underwood isn't going to let this stop him from finding love. The 26-year-old former National Football League star is familiar to viewers thanks to his 4th-place finish on Becca Kufrin's recent season of The Bachelorette, followed by a stint on Bachelor in Paradise. Subsequently, an "After the Final Rose" episode was tacked onto the season to allow viewers-and the show's contestants-to process their feelings, and an Internet firestorm erupted. Underwood later addressed the breakup in an Instagram post, thanking Booth for "teaching me even more about myself, and most importantly, for your friendship that I know will continue far beyond Paradise".

"That's what I'm looking for ... being engaged and then getting married shortly after that", Underwood said, per People.

While ABC has not set an official release date for season 23 of "The Bachelor", fans should expect the show to return in early 2019.

Another called Colton "an opportunist" and many more said they would not be tuning into the new season in January.

The announcement was made on Good Morning America during an interview with Underwood, and Twitter immediately had thoughts about the casting decision.

Underwood made his debut on "The Bachelor" franchise vying for Becca Kufrin's heart on "The Bachelorette".

Despite the backlash, the 26-year-old does have a number of supporters.

In a confessional, Colton said, "She's one of the best people I know". Colton broke down in tears while breaking up with Tia.

There was some support for Colton, but it was mostly coming from one person.
